  • There is an entrance fee of 400 yen compared to that. Shibamata is a great place to stay. Yamamototei is more than just a good look next to it.

  • I think that the fan of Mr. Tora-san is a must-see. However, it is not a place to stay long because it is not a big temple. You can take off your shoes and go around the precincts. There is also "Yagiri pass" nearby.

  • Fabulous area to visit!!! Intricate wood carvings we're so beautiful! Very peaceful setting. Marvelous architecture to enjoy. If you remove your shoes and toss a coin into donation box you may follow your Japanese friends in their prayer ritual.
  • The best place that you can time travel ! Lots old style shops. I enjoyed old snack store so much. There were more Japanese then foreigner traveler. I think they should come here too!
